The man is there for the funeral fur himself. This whole representing doesn't make sense. Thus isn't the funeral of a king they the queen sends someone instead.
I think that is just a custom that the Royals or Heads of State do. The average person that cannot attend or hates to attend funerals at any time, will just send message or call with their regrets. Might send a contribution to a charity in the dead person's name instead of flowers, etc. People in the public eye want to make it known that they loved or respected the person that passed but the service is out to them for whatever reason. Probably to stop media questioning their actions.

Unless your husband or child which makes more sense. That goes got Charles, tough his was at least not related. It just seems unnecessary.
I believe as with most very private funerals, you are either sent a notice or receive a personal call. If you don't receive, don't go. Only once in all my old life have I ever received such an invitation but some of my second cousins didn't. No big deal. This is what the immediate family wanted. Period. Funeral home was closed to the public although not the burial site. Heck, a lot of people now are not having a "funeral service" with viewing, etc., just a memorial that takes place many weeks later. You get to the point that you have to ask "how is this one going to be". Life is funny anymore and things change.
